In a message posted on his Twitter account, the Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, on Friday hailed Kenya’s “bold” leadership in addressing challenges in the region.
Moussa Faki Mahamat met yesterday at the Presidency Palace in Nairobi with Kenyan President William Ruto and thanked Kenya for its leadership in addressing security challenges in the region, especially in Sudan, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The African Union (AU) has been instrumental in promoting peace and stability in Africa by mediating conflicts and providing assistance to countries in crisis. Ruto’s commendation of the AU’s efforts is a recognition of the organization’s role in promoting sustainable development and democratic governance in the continent.
Ruto’s call for joint action against terrorism and crime is a reminder of the significant security challenges that African countries face. The threat of terrorism and other forms of violence has hindered development and destabilized several African countries. To address these challenges, African countries need to work together and develop robust strategies to combat these threats.
The AU’s intervention in Sudan’s crisis, where the Chairperson, Azali Assoumani, contacted General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo to immediately cease hostilities and respect the lives of civilians, is an example of the organization’s commitment to promoting peace and stability in the continent.
